492 copies [& 5 specials] strikingly hand-printed in Verona on Fabriano hand-made paper in the original types used by Giambattista Bodoni at his Bodoni Press in 18th century Parma. Each poem with an opening initial in red. A beautiful example of restrained & elegant printing : very much in the manner of Mardersteig and his 20th century Officina Bodoni which, like Mondadori, was also based in Verona. In fact one of the first titles produced by Mardersteig after his move to Verona in 1927 was printed for the Edizioni Mondadori. Very handsome book.
